Frannie's Big Broken Leg
The City shelter notified Wags & Walks about this magnificent 135 pound mastiff that came in with a broken leg. How could we say no? She was abandoned at a vet hospital and the vet hospital turned her over to the shelter. We don't know how she broke her leg and our best guess for why she was abandoned is because her owner likely couldn't afford the surgery that is needed. We have since discovered some additional issues including a large infected abscess on her other front leg, likely from the same trauma that caused the broken leg. And she also has some lumps/growths that will be investigated. Resting comfortably at Wags & Walks now, Frannie will soon have a delicate surgery performed by an orthopedic specialist surgeon - he will repair and stabilize the broken bones in her huge leg, recovery will take some time but Frannie should be walking well again very soon!+ Read More
Frannie has been adopted and is thoroughly enjoying her new life! Frannie's leg healed well and she is feeling great. Thanks for the support that we received to help pay for her surgery bills.
